At a recent forum on how solar power-based projects can save Arkansas companies millions in budget, three firm clients shared their own stories, discussing the positive change solar power has brought about. In a recent article, Arkansas Business featured the solar power success stories including those of three firm clients, Batesville School District, Entegrity and Seal Solar.
Batesville Schools discussed its money-saving partnership with Entegrity, where a new solar energy system allowed the district to save enough money to give its teachers annual raises. Michael Hester, the Batesville Superintendent, said the key to solar success was the Solar Access Act of 2019 which, “allowed nonprofits, schools and government entities to partner with third-party solar providers on net-metering arrays.” Entegrity, Scenic Hill Solar of North Little Rock, and Seal Solar are working with nonprofit clients and schools that are happy with the results.
In addition, Entegrity installed a two-acre solar array for Ace Glass, allowing Ace to pay less than $10,000 a year to power manufacturing and recycling processes.
